What We Like

One of the world's seven natural wonders, the Great Barrier Reef is a spectacular underwater playground that's home to thousands of marine animals, corals and sponges - postcards and glossy travel magazines don't do this place justice, its something you simply have to experience for yourself

The Green Island Resort not only provides luxury accommodation in an idyllic tropical setting, but also plays a part in preserving this pristine paradise by practicing eco-friendly tourism

Feel free to do as much or as little as your like during your tropical getaway - from topping up your tan by the beachside, to action-packed days of scuba diving, windsurfing and snorkelling

This resort was fantastic. We stayed for three nights and loved it there. The staff were super helpful and friendly and couldn't do enough for you. There are so many turtles around the island so we spent a long time swimming with them. We also went kayaking and windsurfing. We saw lots of fish, rays, giant clams, reef sharks and plenty of other great wildlife. The hotel room was beautiful and the breakfast was huge and so tasty with so much food to choose from.”TripAdvisor
We stayed at the hotel in April and had amazing romantic stay. Truly once in a lifetime experience. Great for everyday snorkelling. Rooms are extremely spacious and luxurious. Food was amazing. We had in room service couple of times but also ate at the restaurant. Restaurant had very generous serves and food was just exquisite. We also visited crocodiles farm. I would definitely return again.”TripAdvisor
This truly was a highlight of our Australian tour. Beautiful accommodation and magical snorkelling off the pier. A must for anyone wanting to escape for a few days.”TripAdvisor
